EMERGENCY ALERT

Coronavirus—the biggest global health crisis of our lifetime—threatens children in every way.

COVID-19 has already left many children without caregivers, out of school and exposed to violence and exploitation.

Your support today can help children in unsafe households, help protect and prepare doctors and health clinics in refugee camps and help support distance learning in the face of school closures. 

Protect Children and the Future We All Share

When you give to Save the Children, 87% of every dollar goes straight to our mission — changing the lives of millions of children right here in the U.S. and around the world.

  • $50 – can keep 10 out-of-school children from going hungry during a pandemic
  • $150 – can provide 75 face masks to protect health workers on the front lines of COVID-19
  • $200 – can equip 40 frontline health workers with protective medical gowns

Thanks to your support, we’re transforming the way health care is delivered in the world’s hardest-to-reach places.

What’s Life Like for Children Growing Up in Conflict in Yemen?

Every day, lives are being devastated by war. Families are being torn apart. Children are going to bed hungry. Now, a new threat—the coronavirus pandemic—has put children in Yemen at even greater risk.

How Do Infant Mortality Rates in the U.S. Differ by State?

In its 2020 U.S. Complement to the Global Childhood Report, Save the Children takes a closer look where and why children in America are dying at a young age. In the bottom-ranked counties, children die at rates up to 5 times those of children in the highest ranked counties in their state.

Your support today helps children who need it the most.
